differences between the foreign law and English law in levels of award
and in substantive law, the amount of the actual award was not


I think it means that where foreign courts are making an award for damages – they may do so – that process is acceptable – as long as the award is deemed to be ‘reasonable’ by the English court – presumably within the limits of what is considered ‘normal’ for such an award, in England.
